We're now into the second round of the tournament. It's really when brackets start to take shape. I had a great day yesterday, going 8-0 and 7-1 in my brackets respectively. Although my one loss was big. I had Washington beating Purdue to advance to the Sweet 16. I didn't think much of it, until I looked at my picks. Somehow, I clicked on UW to beat UConn. So I've lost an Elite 8 team. I wasn't happy about it when I saw it. I have UConn advancing to the Elite 8 and losing to Memphis in my other brackets. I have no idea how I didn't catch this. So now I'm a Purdue fan, and hope the Boilermakers can upset the Huskies. I'll cry if a typo costs me a bracket.
